Superintendent Dr. Michelle Reid has named Lisa Youngblood Hall to the role of Chief Experience and Engagement Officer. 

Youngblood Hall brings 29 years of experience to Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) in communications and community engagement work, including 14 years working in K-12 and higher education. Most recently, she served as the Chief Communications and Experience Officer for the Northshore School District in the state of Washington with Dr. Reid.

Throughout her career, she has had a measurable impact on improving the experiences of students, staff, families, and community stakeholders. She led a bond and levy campaign for her division that resulted in historic community investments to modernize school buildings, increase student and staff technology resources, and investments in the student education experience. She initiated the development of an online student enrollment process that resulted in increased early student enrollment which led to better-informed staffing decisions. She created an inclusive graduation website with digital ceremony programs translated into multiple languages.

A graduate of the University of Maryland, Youngblood Hall has won several awards including: a National School Public Relations Association Publications and Digital Media Award of Excellence and a Golden Achievement Award; the Council for Advancement and Support of Education Silver Award; the Telly Awards Bronze recognition, and a Daytime Emmy from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for her work as an Associate Producer on the Oprah Winfrey Show.

Youngblood Hall is a champion for equity and works tirelessly to ensure families have access to the resources they need to support their children’s success. She will provide leadership and guidance for systemwide initiatives and facilitate positive and equitable experiences for students, families, employees, and community members.
